  1. Indeed seems to find more jobs than SimplyHired. There is no shortage of new job sits. Bright and Path are two ‘trendy’ ones according to my Twitter feeds…

    • I’ve worked with Simply Hired for at least five years. They got me my first paid blogging job. They are excellent or I wouldn’t recommend them. I don’t care what’s trendy; I care what works.
